Types of Cattle Handling Equipment
There are a variety of different types of cattle handling equipment that Edge Wholesale Direct supplies, including:
Cattle Squeeze Chambers
Cattle squeeze chambers are an excellent way to control the flow of cattle traffic, inspect specific cows, and handle any health issues that a cow might have. These chambers offer a narrow passage that a cow can enter and move through with ease, and they have a gate at either end to isolate the animal. The sides of the chute apply pressure to both sides of the cow to limit movement and reduce neck strain so that the cow remains as still and safe as possible.
Calf Squeeze Tilt Tables
Calf squeeze tilt tables can come in extremely handy during calving season. These pieces of cattle handling equipment squeeze the sides of the animal and support the neck in order to tilt it sideways at a 45-degree angle and allow for examination and work to be done on the calf. Calf squeeze tilt tables are instrumental in clipping hooves, vaccination, and branding. They can support up to 400 pounds and are useful for work on other animals as well, including goats and sheep.
